06:15 A'nin checkpoint
The gate is open. Passage is very slow. One person is detained for by-passing the line, this is according to the soldiers.
Later we were told that the detainee was held until the gates' closing time and then was sent back home.
Sima called the DCO to complain about the extremely slow passage.
Upon our arrival the gate was still closed and was opened 10 minutes later. Many people cross over in both directions.
7:45 Reihan checkpoint -
Only now we saw the seamstresses rushing out of the sleeve hurrying to work at East Barta'a.
Traffic is busy.
People complain of an hour's delay.
Five vehicles wait to get in from East Barta'a.
The line on the other side is the same.
